The leader of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, Amir Maqam, has said alliance of opposition parties in the national assembly against the federal government was a futile effort since it has totally failed. He said this while addressing a divisional convention in Gulbahar in the city on Sunday.
He believed PML-N was strengthening with each passing day. Muqam, who is also adviser to the prime minister, said the premier was loyal to the country and wanted to develop the nation.
While addressing the participants, he hit out at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairperson Imran Khan, saying his tall claims and social media campaigns have not brought changes in the province.
“The habitual sit-in politician [Imran Khan] has nothing else to do – he must list what changes his party has brought to K-P.”
While speaking about the accountability bodies in the province, Muqam said K-P Ehtesab Commission and the anti-corruption department were also not able to work properly. “The provincial ministers have corruptions allegations [on them], but the Ehtesab Commission was helpless,” he said.
He also questioned where the billions of rupees go that were promised for 360 dams.
Besides PTI, he also criticised Pakistan Peoples Party Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, saying the latter must question his father’s assets.
“Bilawal should talk about accountability, but must first bring in father’s [Asif Zardari] assets to Pakistan,” Muqam said.
About Jamaat-e-Islami chief Sirajul Haq, Muqam said the leader must stop [his train march against corruption] to check the doings of ministers from his party in Peshawar.
While addressing participants of the convention, the PML-N leader condemned the killings in Kashmir.
